After the series spotlighted athletes such as Josh Donaldson and Adrian Gonzalez
for past entries, Mlb The Show 17 will pull from baseball’s past for cover duties next year. Seattle Mariner and Cincinnati Reds legend Ken Griffey Jr.
will adorn the cover of 2017’s release, Sony announced today.
For those who grew up watching baseball in the 1990’s, Ken Griffey Jr.
is one of the most imitated, and celebrated athletes of all time. A 13-time All-Star, 10-time Gold Glove winner and masher of 630 home runs, The Kid is an excellent choice for the cover of Mlb The Show 17. This is just another accolade for the legend, as 2016 also saw him go into the Baseball Hall of Fame. For those that follow that process, you’ll know that this is no small feat.
As for the game itself, Sony has not revealed full specs for the title yet. While we wait for those details to arrive,
